Has anybody else heard rumors of Thailand looking real hard at polywell in the past few months at Ongkharak Nuclear Research Centre.

Up up and away
The short-term goal for IEC development is to
promote the IEC thruster concept to TRL3 by the end of
2019. Several verification processes are required to
achieve this goal, such verification of IEC operation
characteristics, extracted plasma properties, and thrust
performance. Currently, tank 12 vacuum system is
prepared for testing of 1kW-scale EP device.

Interesting read.

Is it me, or does this design seem to be about where Dr. Bussard was about 15 to 20 years ago?

Looks like there is a small (and very young) Canadian team that is working on Polywell related research. Not sure what they will achieve, but given the lack of Polywell related news, this is at least somewhat refreshing:

Notably hidden among the budget items for NASA was a $100 million allocation to develop a nuclear thermal rockets.
Does anybody know if polywell tried to get their fingers into that rice bowl?

I understand the frustration and the intent of this reply, but rarely do I see a reply like this on Talk-Polywell.
